In Response To: Re: MCC Gameplay. (Camera) (Avateur)

: I'm pretty sure HBO has pretty much always had a no leaks policy, but I'm not
: sure if that ever changed in recent years.

: Well, the lack of context on the cinematic teaser can lead people like myself
: to jump to conclusions!

: For example, if the final cinematic of the game cuts to Lord Hood and then
: maybe back to the Chief, well, I think it does a lot to ruin the feel for
: the final cinematic of H2. Showing Lord Hood really serves no purpose, you
: know? In the original, we see the ship enter Earth's atmosphere as chaos
: ensues all around. There's static and conversations all over. We're
: hearing this from Master Chief's perspective and from his helmet. The
: focus is on him. Why? He's on board. He's back at Earth. We're finishing
: this fight (sort of). Showing off flashy CGI while detracting from the
: subtext and writing of the scene just to show off flashy CGI is, in my
: opinion, pointless.

..but, the original final cutscene DID cut back to Hood..
All they've done is let Hood finish his line "Isolate that signal, Master Chief, you mind telling me what you're doing on that ship?", in the original it cuts back to Chief before he can finish it.

It's quite possible that they just haven't finished the scene yet, and haven't animated the Chief on the Dreadnaught, so they just continued Hood's line.
